DESCRIPTION
From the Rush University Medical Center Archives, Chicago, Ill. The Rush University Medical Center Archives is a department of the Library of Rush University. It is the official archival agency of Rush University Medical Center and Rush University. For related digital collections, please visit http://rushu.libguides.com/rusharchives.

The original Rush Medical College was established in 1837 and closed in 1942. It was reestablished in 1969 and affiliated with Presbyterian-St. Luke's Hospital. This corporation became Rush-Presbyterian-St. Luke's Medical Center in 1969. Rush University was subsequently established in 1972, and came to include not only Rush Medical College, but also the College of Nursing, College of Health Sciences, and the Graduate College. Rush-Presbyterian-St. Luke's Medical Center changes its name to Rush University Medical Center in 2003.

Yearbooks include the yearbook of Rush Medical College, The Pulse, (1991-continuing); the yearbook of the College of Nursing, Vital Signs, (1992-1994); and New Student Picture Books for the Rush University and its colleges, (1971-continuing). The dates of the New Student Picture Books are the years the included students started at Rush University, so picture books may include more than one college class. Most of the items in this collection were digitized and made available through the Internet Archive in 2015, through the Yearbook Digitization Grant form the Consortium of Academic and Research Libraries in Illinois (CARLI).

Some Rush Medical College Alumni Directories are also included in this collection, beginning with 1971. Older Rush Medical College Alumni Directories can be found in the Rush Medical College collection: http://rushu.libguides.com/rusharchives
